HTMx: Building modern web applications without JS

In the last decade, the rise of Single Page Applications (SPA) allowed sophisticated web applications to be built with libraries such as React, Angular etc. — putting a big JS stack in front of the client. Let us take a look into HTMx and why its approach is fundamentally different from current wave of evolving frontend tools: Based on Hypermedia as an architectural concept, HTMx allows developers to leverage HTML, HTTP and REST as the primary tools for building dynamic user interfaces and enables faster development without reliance on JavaScript frameworks and dependencies. Also, it embraces progressive enhancement and graceful degradation principles.

We had the creator of HTMx with us in this session to introduce Hypermedia and HTMx, so you can get a first-hand overview of it, and hopefully you are hooked to give it a try, too!
